Miniature Horse Pregnancy, Foaling and Mare Stare Forum

Do you have a pregnant mare that you would like help with? Please add her here each year, and our members can help you with her progression through the foaling process. You may post questions about pregnancy and foaling here, and all questions are also welcome on our main forum.
Any questions that apply to the already pregnant mare about foaling, up to, and just after the birth of your foal go here! 
Once the foal is born* all new questions belong on our main Miniature Horse Forum and will be moved there if posted here. *NOTE: Once the foal is born, is up nursing well, has passed the meconium, made it through the first full day, and your mare has passed the placenta, then all new questions after that belong on the main forum. Don't worry, it will end up in the correct place and all our members (even the ones who frequent this forum) will be there to help you. Questions about breeding go on our main forum. There are pinned topics with important information and archives to read. We are here to help!
If you have a stall cam, please add the link to the pinned topic so others can help you watch and alert you if needed.
* Please remember to add your new foal to our yearly foal count pinned at the top of the main forum and also add it to the pinned topic, "foals born with the help of this board" here on this forum.
Have fun and remember that while that mare has us waiting for the foal, there are many things to talk about.  The Back Porch is the "go-to" place for that. Please keep this forum on topic. :yes
